However, with the rise of the coronavirus and the increase in the number of people infected with the virus, the uncertainty and confusion among them has reached its peak.
Global carmakers are stepping up their efforts to open factories and follow safety protocols created to produce artificial respiration devices in China and the United States in recent weeks. If they want to see if they have the virus, they will have a voluntary blood test.
Although some companies, such as General Motors, have stated that they do not believe that blood tests are useful, they use measures such as checking the body temperature of workers before entering the factories set up by Amazon to protect their workers. Aware of the health protocols, the company has reopened its plant in China.
Published reports suggest that many of the world's largest automakers, such as Ford, Fiat Chrysler, Toyota Motors and Honda Motors, intend to prevent further damage caused by the widespread outbreak of Coronavirus, which has shut down and shut down production lines. They led to the reopening of their factories in mid-April this year as they faced severe financial crises and the risk of bankruptcy and liquidity shortages, as well as heavy pressure from the government and health care institutions.

Ford of the United States had previously announced the reopening of its plant, but Fiat Chrysler, which had been forced to downgrade during that time, said it would keep its company closed until April 14.
Honda, which said it would keep Ved plants closed until April 20, launched its plant in Wuhan, China, in the past three days by testing workers' body temperature and asking them to stay more than a meter apart. The company has taken body temperature testing workers and installed posters asking them to observe a distance of more than one meter from each other.
Workers, meanwhile, have been asked to announce where they were at the time of the coronavirus epidemic and the closure of the plant. Currently, 98% of the 12,000 workers at the Honda Dongfeng plant in Wuhan have returned to work, and the plant is working to make up for lost labor with overtime. According to the banner hanging from the roof of the factory, the current goal of its managers is to produce 1,237 vehicles per day, which is 17% higher than the 1,060 conventional production units of this factory.
